What is Vitamin K?
Vitamin K was discovered in 1929 as an essential nutrient for blood coagulation (blood clotting).
The initial discovery was reported in a German scientific journal, where it was calledKoagulationsvitamin. That's where the "K" comes from.
It was also discovered by the legendary dentist Weston Price, who travelled the world in the early 20th century studying the relationship between diet and disease in different populations.
He found that the non-industrial diets were high in some unidentified nutrient, which seemed to provide protection against tooth decay and chronic disease.
He referred to this mystery nutrient as Activator X, but this is now believed to have been Vitamin K2.
There are two main forms of Vitamin K... K1 (phylloquinone) is found in plant foods like leafy greens, whereas Vitamin K2 (menaquinone) is found in animal foods and fermented foods.
Vitamin K2 can be further divided into several different subtypes, that's Vitamin K2 with MK-4, MK-7, MK-9
Vitamin K2 with MK-4, MK-7, MK-9 for nutritional supplement
1. Blood Clotting. Vitamin K2 is essential for the carboxylation of glutamate residues in certain proteins, to give carboxyglutamate. This modification allows the protein to bind calcium, an essential event in the blood clotting cascade.
2. Atherosclerotic. This may be due in part to the geranylgeranyl side chain of vitamin K2 which is thought to inhibit the mevalonate pathway, thus preventing the prenylation of growth factors required for osteoclast activation in much the same way as nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates. Bone health. Vitamin K2 (menatetrenone) can prevent fractures and sustains lumbar bone mineral density in osteoporosis.
3. Osteoporosis. Vitamin K2, combined with vitamin D and calcium, has been used primarily as treatment or prevention of osteoporosis. Leucocythemia. Vitamin K2 and its derivatives induce apoptosis in leukemia cells and enhance the effef aof all-trans retinoic acid.
4. Blood Disorders. Vitamin K2 (menadione) may improve a group of blood disorders known as myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Vitamin K2 is more effective than vitamin K1 with respect to osteoclastogenesis likewise hypocholesterolemic effects and the ability to slow atherosclerotic progression have only been observed with vitamin K2.
